PSE8 installed well on LION and not encountered any issue while using it for 2 hrs. Saw a minor thing in maximize button, but it works well.

On an install from DVD, the installer installs CS4 then errors out during the install of the main application. Disabling my antivirus and firewall did not fix.

After upgrade from Snow Leopard to Lion on iMac late 2010, PSE 8 works fine without problems.
(PSE 8 was installed on Snow Leopard before updating)

Installed PSE8 on SL disk. Migrated to my Lion boot disk. When starting in Lion, get message “Application has Moved”. If I cancel the repair of settings, PSE starts and works fine. But it will crash on quit.

I upgraded to Lion and my software (PSE8) doesn't recognize RAW images anymore in the Nikon format (NEF). Can anyone help me with this?

I am no longer able to capture images from my epson v300 scanner directly into PS8. Image Capture, nor Preview are able to succeed when attempting to send to PS8 either.

I've seen several postings about the TWAIN plug-in for PS8 requiring Rosetta support which was dropped in Lion…
